Sidney Crosby will play in his 500th game on Thursday.
"I think all those numbers make you think about it a little bit," Crosby said. "When I think about 500, I probably think more about how many I could be at [if not for a lot of time lost to injuries]. But it's nice when you think about being halfway to a thousand. It's gone by pretty quickly, even though it could have been more." Injuries certainly have spoiled what could have been some great campaigns for him. Still, when he's healthy, he's been dominate, as has been the case this season with a league-leading 38 points in 29 games.

Evgeni Malkin hasn't scored in 13 games, the longest drought of his NHL career, and Sidney Crosby has only one goal in 10 games.
But Sid the Kid says he's not worried. "At the end of the day, you've gotta score, but if you're getting chances, I mean, I don't know what you really change," Crosby said. "You try to go to the net just as much, work on those little things like stop at the net, get a screen, competing down at those areas. But ultimately, it's a matter of putting it in when you get a chance. We just gotta find ways to get pucks to the net and trust that if we keep doing those things consistently, not sometimes, we'll find ways to score consistently."
